The map set has been written by Billya. Sadly, at a time it’s pretty much amazing, but it was produced by a lot of people.
Fans upset that Act 3 of Baldurs Gate 3 is significantly less refined that Act 1 is now able to know why, as is the discovery of a full-strength pile of cutting content.
For the greatest and most beloved Gate, it’s not without any fail, especially as you reach its final game.
There will be some bugs and other technical errors which will be fixed all the time, but better yet, the final act would be a quality equivalent to the incredibly impressive first.
Even though the contrast between the beginning and the end has multiple explanations, as well as the fact that Act 1 was in early access for nearly three years, many fans worried that Larian Studios rushed development of the ending so as to make its release date, a new sign seems to have proved just that.
As it turns out, there’s a lot of material that has been cut in the game, especially from Act 3; the fact is that Larian Studios could have used a few more months of development.
I’m surprised because of the amount of the tension that’s tied into the final act but will advise everybody who hasn’t beaten Baldurs Gate 3 at least once to avoid reading further. Even though avoiding most extreme spoilers, avoid the most extreme spoilers.
In addition to that, we will not analyse all of the details, but some examples include cut dialogue, cut scenes and an entire area in the upper city.
In addition to the game, an exhaustion mechanic is still referenced in the game, with party members expressing exhaustion, but no happening, and an item slot for belts that never made it in.
Some of the party members also got some chunks of their story arcs left off. For example, an alternative resolution to Karlachs storyline, while complete and fully spoken, was spotted on the cutting room floor. It was tied to the above-precious city area.
There are nearly an hour-long epoch of voiceover derived from The Withers character, which was instantly accessed via YouTube.
Unfortunately, with no more difficult time, we have all the same problems.

Naturally there is hope/expectations that at least some of this content will be added in the future, irrespective of the need for patches or to make a definitive edition.
Larian has done this before with its Divinity: Sin of the original, which got boosted editions later in the line, and contained all-new content.

Really hope to get a definitive edition update on Act 3 restoring some of the cut quests and dialogue from the story 3 as well as some of the rest of the content emitted, and some of the plot points become messy, says Sporshie.
Larian and Baldurs Gate 3 are still magnificent, yet still we are really able to see how much we have done. In fact, there were actively decided to cut some of that, but many of it seemed to be too late, adds gmSancty.
The most painful part of all these cut content is its obvious look, adds dougodu. Most games have cut content, which is no big deal. Even though you play Baldurs Gate 3, you can clearly feel something should be there. It isn’t that hard, it’s very jarring.
Gate 3 of Baldurs has a PC. The PlayStation 5 version is out on September 6. A new Xbox X/S version is also in development.
